Get Married at the Museum

The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm is available for indoor and outdoor weddings. Receptions are held inside our newly restored 1927 Calf Barn. Located in historic Stony Creek Village, the 1840 Van Hoosen Farmhouse was home to five generations of the Taylor and Van Hoosen families and has been carefully preserved and furnished with antiques belonging to the families. Our historic buildings and immaculately maintained grounds are undeniably unique and will amaze your guests. If you are searching for a venue full of history and character for your wedding locations, you found it!

Indoor ceremonies are held in the 1927 Calf Barn that has a capacity of 130 guests. This adaptively reused building is equipped with heat, a/c, a built in sound system, projector screen, as well as a backup generator, and is fully handicap accessible. The Calf Barn is conveniently located across the street from the Van Hoosen Farmhouse.
